    Read about many link baiting articles available everywhere (copyblogger, seomoz, performancing, etc).
    SEMrush
    And then, don't do what the article said, because so many people have been doing it. Do exactly the opposite.

    The wiseman said: " write as though you don't want to be digg, and you will be digg".

    I made that up actually, but it makes some sense looking that almost every blog has a "top 10" or "how to" or whatever.

    there's a "suggest an idea for an article" thing or something. it's not like you can just get voted on. everything is individually reviewed & moderated obviously. komar did it, though. :)

    I'll figure something out. The past 2 days this is what I have worked on and I have found alot of interesting ways to drive traffic but no much for repeat customers. I guess I just need more interesting content. I figured forums would be good, but its not as good as I thought.

    I don't think it is too hard to get on the front page of digg - just read digg and get a feel for what is popular, then write story for that market. But, the problem I've noticed with Digg is even if it brings you a lot of traffic, it might not bring you a lot of money. If you are trying to get ad revenue, digg users are too smart to click on ads. Selling something might work but they are likely smart enough to do price comparisons, etc. So... there is a bit of hype with digg in a way... but you will get a lot of traffic.

    Digg and other social bookmarkers are great for traffic, as long as you're not expecting them to start manically clicking your ads.

    They are hit and run surfers. They storm in, skim over the page and then storm back out to digg for their next fix of instant interweb gratification. The way to catch them is to turn them into repeat traffic.

    Once they're coming back to your site under their own power (ie, not linking from digg), then they'll start converting.
